AAF Creative Zen Presents Alexa Carlin
Friday, 10/09/2020-, 09:00 am-10:00 am
Join us online for a FREE, thought-provoking talk with founder and CEO of Women Empower X, Alexa Carlin.
Alexa Carlin is a nationally-renowned public speaker and Founder & CEO of Women Empower X. Inspired by her own entrepreneurial pursuits, Alexa founded WEX with the mission to help more women pursue their passions and get to the next level in their career and life.
Alexa founded her first business in high school becoming the sole licensee to design jewelry for an L.A. based fashion company. This entrepreneurial spirit led her to starting a blog in college, Hello Perfect, which served the purpose of helping young women gain confidence in themselves and attracted the likes of Mark Cuban, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Madden, Marc Jacobs and other influential celebrities.
In college, only months before graduation, Alexa found herself in a coma with a 1% chance of living. This near-death experience led to a number of health issues but today, Alexa sees this experience as something to be grateful for as it has been her prime motivation and inspiration to share her story authentically with audiences all over the world.
Alexa was featured on the cover of Meetings & Conventions Magazine as 1 of 15 “Young Millennial Go-Getters To Watch” and named one of the “Most Powerful Women In Fort Lauderdale” by Gold Coast’s Fort Lauderdale Daily.
She has also been featured on Cheddar TV, FOX, ABC, CBS, OWN and in Entrepreneur, Glamour Magazine, Mashable, and TEDx among others. With a following that reaches over 100,000 people on and offline, Alexa’s mission is to make a difference in at least one person’s life every day
AAF CreativeZen was born out of a desire for the local AAF Greater Fort Lauderdale & the Palm Beaches chapter of the American Advertising Federation & Choose954 to inspire and engage with our local creative community. Every Creative Zen event includes complimentary coffee and breakfast bites before a short inspiring and thought provoking talk during the second Friday morning of the month. All Creative Zen events are free of charge and open to the community, being creative or a member of the Advertising Federation is not required! #AAFCreativeZen
